QA1 suspension ?

Planning on buying tubular k member and a Arms for my turbo build. Originally was gonna go with UPR but have been reading good things about QA1 and it's a tad cheaper. Perfect for this budget project, anybody have any experience with them?

I'd be throwing on a ON3 Turbo Kit (1st gen) want to make sure it'll work perfect

Don't be like Kim (a friend of mine ) just because it says " bolt on" doesn't mean that it is going to fit perfectly with NO modification. I can't answer your question, just saying .

No kidding. I remember when I put the one I just removed in my car with proper year arms. Took it to get aligned and guy laughed and said no way. Ended up with Fox body arms on car which worked for me. Don't even get me going about placement of steering rack.

Best thing I did was get it off car and into the dumpster.

I sent my QA1 shocks that almost wrecked me twice back to QA1 and told them to throw them away. I didn't even want them in my garbage.

Being in the suspension business here's what I find kinda funny:

Ford/Mustang crowd swears by Strange and is the most recommended strut/shock to use (imo).
Chevy crowd swears by QA1 and is the most recommended shock to use (imo).

I've found both to be good and bad but it really depends on the cars level of performance.
